Conscious Business Training & Certification

The Time For Conscious Business is NOW!

The current standard of business isn’t working. It’s not sustainable for life on earth and people are fed up. That’s because something foundational is missing, and that is the concept of Oneness - the understanding that all of life is interconnected.

Businesses today often operate as if they’re in silos, but everything they do impacts people, the environment and the world around them. To continue to thrive, Oneness must become a central organizing principle for businesses. Some emerging companies are already focusing on this but it has not yet been widely adopted. Our goal is to change this and we have a proven framework to help companies successfully transform the way they operate.

There is money to be made on solving the world’s biggest problems. Consumers, especially Millennials, want to buy from brands that stand for something greater than just quarterly earnings. Look at Tesla, Tom’s Shoes, Kickstarter just to name a few.    

Businesses need to develop both the awareness and skills to consciously evolve their business. But how?
There are many companies that are motivated to become conscious businesses but simply don’t know how or where to even start. They need Certified Conscious Business Agents!
Humanity’s Team’s Conscious Business Training and Certification Program
Conscious Business Agents are professionals who have the expertise to guide companies - either as a leader within or as a consultant - through the transformation process to become a conscious business.  Humanity’s Team’s Conscious Business Training and Certification Program utilizes a structured methodology to teach people how to become Conscious Business Agents over the course of three months of training and collaborative work with peers in the Community of Practice.

Graduates of the program receive a certificate of completion and three months membership in the Community of Practice with the opportunity to complete a peer reviewed project and become Certified Conscious Business Agents.

Certified Conscious Business Agents will help companies:
  • Recognize that all of its actions are interconnected and affect global ecosystems – social, financial, environmental and political.
  • Create new ways to operate that are profitable as well as healthy and nurturing for employees, suppliers, partners and local communities.
  • Go beyond sustainability, and “do no harm” by focusing on restoring the earth’s health.
  • Operate with economic, social and ecological transparency.
  • Act as good global citizens that respect human dignity and fairness.

The Conscious Business Initiative will be disruptive. It will overturn legacy business models that focus exclusively on profit. And it will usher in a business model — a Conscious Business model that creates function where there now is dysfunction.

The time for this change is now! We invite you to join the movement! Sign the Conscious Business Declaration and learn about the Humanity’s Team Conscious Business Training and Certification program.

    What is a Certified Conscious Business Agent?

    Once you’ve read and signed the Conscious Business Declaration the next step is to enroll in Humanity’s Team’s Conscious Business Training and Certification program to become trained in the essential skills and tools needed to transform business in the spirit of the Declaration.

    The Conscious Business Training and Certification program offers
    inspiration, knowledge, skills, and support.

    Once you graduate from the program, and complete a your project in the Community of Practice, you will become a Certified Conscious Business Agent and you can go straight to work. You will also continue to receive instruction and support through the Community of Practice, which includes specialized forums to share knowledge, form partnerships, and exclusive courses with leading experts in business transformation.

    Who Should Become a Certified Conscious Business Agent?
    • If you already have a deep experience of Oneness or interconnection with all life and you are ready to embody that deeper experience in your professional life.
    • If you are you working in a position of influence or leadership within an existing business, or are an entrepreneur driven to birth a new enterprise, or are coach or consultant and you want to help lead companies through this critical transformation.

    Calling All Entrepreneurs, Intrapreneurs and Change Agents!

    You might wonder what it feels like to impact business in such an awe-inspiring way. 
    Here is a first hand account from John Thomas our Conscious Business Initiative Director:
    “When I was working in the high tech field at Intel I remember feeling fear about becoming a conscious business change agent. When we look at the state of business culture today, this can seem like a scary step - even terrifying? But once I made that choice I experienced what conscious business change agents universally report. This step enriches our lives in unimaginable ways:
    • We feel more bliss, grace, and ease
    • We feel the joy of being part of something bigger than ourselves
    • Coming from our deeper sense of purpose, we access a more energy and creativity to be a trailblazer
    • We feel the satisfaction of knowing that business initiatives or product that are aligned with higher purpose can positively touch millions of lives
    • And we enjoy the satisfaction of living and fulfilling our soul purpose, of finding your right livelihood… and being on the right side of history
    Still there is no denying that many will feel much fear and trepidation about becoming a Certified Conscious Business Agent. But the good news is that we no longer have to make this step alone. Conscious Business Agents can now work as part of a community. In addition to the CB Declaration and Training Program, we are very excited to soon be launching a CB Community of Practice.”
